School Notes

  • Each student is different. Careful diagnosis that can assess the unique nature of each student's learning style is critical to a successful educational program. Each student's program must be built around individual strengths and weaknesses.  Students with average or high intellectual ability who have learning differences can master the skills they find most difficult. Information processing and language skills are the key to success in education and in the future workplace. These skills must be learned and not bypassed. The cornerstone of learning is the highly developed human relationship between the student and teacher. This relationship allows the student to develop self-confidence in the context of both academic and personal growth.
